We're doomed! The world is coming to an end! We must act now to
survive!!! Players are the most powerful leaders in the world working
alongside up to nine others to build a starship. Time is short! The
goal? Build and be on a starship that escapes a dying world — or betray
everyone to ensure your own survival. No seats on the starship are
guaranteed. We're Doomed! is a quick, timed, panic-inducing game of
international collaboration, retaliation, diplomacy, conspiracy, and
blowing each other up for fun!
It is not the 11th hour. It is the final hour. Do we have time? How many
seats will be available? Who will get a seat? Will the ship even get
completed? During the Action Phase, players take one action in turn
order to produce or steal either Resource or Influence tokens. Resource
tokens are used to build the escape ship. The bigger the ship, the more
players can escape to victory at the end of the game. Influence tokens
determine who boards the ship first at the end of the game. Each
civilization is better at one of the standard actions.
During the Contribution Phase, there is no turn structure. Players can
negotiate as they pledge their Resources to building the escape ship by
contributing Resource tokens. The player who contributes the most
Resources is awarded 1 Influence and gets to draw the event card for
that round. Each card is one of one hundred unique and ruthless event
cards that change the game drastically — introducing new restrictions,
secret missions, ethical dilemmas, physical challenges, robots, aliens,
lizard-people and more. The player who drew the event card then takes an
action, starting the next Action Phase. The game continues in this
fashion (actions, contributions, event) until time is out!
After 15 minutes, play stops. Time to board the starship. Who gets in
first? The players with the most Influence board the ship first. Once
full, the ship launches and the remaining players are left behind to
die. Beware! Resources can also be used to nuke a player, completely
eliminating them from the game, so watch the other players’ Resource
Witness humanity at its worst and finally come to terms with the truth
you have known all along — we're doomed!
